This is essentially a particular modification of Child’s Pose from Yoga. The specific difference between Cat Claw and Child’s Pose is that with Cat Claw you reach across with both hands toward one side and drop your head underneath your armpit to allow a deeper stretch of the musculature attached to your shoulder. As you move your hands from one side to the other you should “walk” your fingers across, much like a cat’s paws clawing at the carpet. By walking your hands across instead of lifting and placing your arms on the other side you are less likely to stimulate the muscles attached to your shoulders which should allow a deeper stretch across the joint.
